Condo Updates

17 August 2013 - Guy from Welco came to measure the space for my built-in wardrobe.

19 August 2013 - Connie from Simple Pleats & Decor came to measure my windows to install blinds. Because I'm lazy, I chose the type of material that has the least maintenance and only requires a wipe to get rid of the dirt :-)

20 August 2013 - Went to Welco kitchen to finalise the design for my built-in wardrobe. Chose the darker shade of melamine board to match my kitchen cabinet :-)

24 August 2013 - Went to the Sen Heng branch in Ampang to buy a Sony Bravia 46-inche LED television including a Sony DVD. Reason I chose Sen Heng was because I wanted to utilise my Maybank Treatpoints. Only sad part is that Maybank had changed the conversion to 250 points for every Ringgit. Previously it was 200 points for every Ringgit. So I paid RM2,564 in cash and the balance was offsetted by the Treatpoints.

29 August 2013 - Delivery of my beloved TV and DVD player. After the delivery guys left my place and I started playing with my new toys, I realised that the tag behind my TV states LCD when I had paid for an LED. I called up Sen Heng and apparently for that model, both the LED and LCD uses the same platform, wth does that mean. I also checked the Sony website and yes, they are both the same, wth. That night I watched Lord of the Rings (The Return of the King) on DVD because I didn't have a television line yet.

30 August 2013 - TM guys came to install my UniFi and HyppTV. My internet connection is now superfast and the programmes on HyppTV makes me glued to the sofa for many hours :-) On that same day in the afternoon, the contractors came to install my blinds. Now my neighbours can't look in, especially when I walk around in my undies ;-)

Last Renovation Works

Been neglecting updates on my new place. Anyway, here goes:

5 August 2013 - Contractors laid the skirting for the entire condo. I must say that my contractor really knows how to choose the skirting tiles. Really matches the broken marble!

6 August 2013 - Polishing of broken marble flooring is the last of the renovation works. Now I can see my own reflection on the floor! However to maintain the shine, I must use cleaning liquid for terrazzo flooring. If I use any other ordinary floor cleaner, the shine will fade.

7 August 2013 - The contractor dropped by my office to inform me of the costs (and to hand me back the keys). Total renovation costs was less than RM10,000 (including accessories and parts). I'm a happy condo owner :-)

8 August 2013 - Since it was the Hari Raya Aidifitri hols, I brought my entire family to see the condo. They didn't see it pre renovation, so they can't compare the dramatic transformation post renovation. Anyway, they're very impressed with the location, as what 100% of people have commented when they see it. Location, location, location - that's the mantra when buying a property.

13 August 2013 - Went to Welco Kitchen in Taman Dagang to make a RM500 booking for my built-in wardrobe. The guy is gonna come measure the space tomorrow and installation is set on 4 September 2013. I asked whether they could install earlier, but their schedule is full. Apparently they have 6 installations a day and the earliest they can install my wardrobe is 4 September 2013. I'm thinking of moving in first and then only install the wardrobe.

Productive Day at Condo

I was on leave today to supervise the Inovar Flooring guys install my Burmese Teak flooring :-) Only 3 handymen, and the job was done in 1.5 hours. I was impressed!

As I mentioned before, I like to kill as many birds as possible with one stone. So I arranged for Ikea to deliver and install the furniture today too. They came about 3.30pm and completed assembling the Ektorp 3-seater sofa and the Hemnes television bench in 30 minutes.

Now that the renovations is almost completed, I feel that I need to put skirting on the walls in the living room. Now it looks kinda bare and incomplete.
